I was relieved of blogging duty on Christmas day by my fellow bloggers. This was a good thing for all. I don’t like Christmas. Blogging today, the first day of a new year, is more my speed. A new beginning is something I can really get behind.
New Year’s day is a great day to throw things away. You can get rid of papers you were holding on to for one reason or another. You can throw away all of the catalogs you thought you might need for Christmas shopping. It is even a good day to throw away socks and underwear and just start over in those two drawers. Something about starting 2007 in new underpants is appealing right?? I’ll see you in the gutchie department later today.
2006 was not too bad for the Roger pack. There was some sadness, yes, but also many accomplishments to build on in 2007. This is an improvement over some years, when I look forward to the year changing just hoping it will signal some kind of cosmic switch that gets the universe to stop messing with us.
Then there are the resolutions. It seems like a good time to change bad habits and adopt new and better ones. I love the idea of resolutions. They are just so darn hard to keep past January 3rd. Every year I say I’m going to be more organized. Sigh.
Some people make a resolution to stop making resolutions. I know from experience that is tricky territory. I’m still trying to make a comeback from giving up lent for lent.
Does anyone out there care to share resolutions or new beginnings? I’ll be in the office throwing away papers all day, so I’d love to hear from you. Although, I do need to go out for a bit to buy some new undies…….
